Due to medical insurance problems, i havent been to see a doctor yet for my pregnancy. im 31wks. I have my first apt tomorrow morning. i dont have any worries, never had complications with my first 2.

I didnt choose to see a doc until now because i was living in another state for a while which refused me medicaid once i became pregnant. i worked and earned less than $200/ bi-weekly. All of which went to bills, diapers and food. Now im back in my home-state which is finally allowing me medicaid. im excited to see the Dr tomorrow.

ive read online that many woman refuse prenatal care or just choose not to, and everyone looks at me like im crazy for not have seen a Dr yet.. i didnt want more debt.


UPDATE: Saw the doc, everything is great! got an ultrasound scheduled on Friday!

Even IF your first 2 pregnancies didn't have any complications that doesn't mean this one won't either. ALL pregnancies are different. The Doctor and the Nurses are going to look at you like you are crazy ...tomorrow. I hope everything is okay with you and the baby.

Hmm. Here a Dr won't see you once you pass 12 weeks.

Are you sure it's not until 12 weeks? The OBs won't see you here until 12 weeks+, unless there is a medical complication (high risk pregnancy, previous miscarriages or ectopic, etc).

Women were having babies for centuries before modern medicine got involved.
